Hey guys,

I booted up my XP Pro machine for the first time this morning, and low and behold I got one of those "Password will expire in 11 days, do you want to change it...." popups.

I don't use any logon passwords on this machine. How can I remove this popup?


Thanks

Heeter

right click on my computer, go to manage
then user accounts, select your account (right click & go to properties), and tick "password never expires"

I can't right click on the account.

Is there maybe a regedit for this instead?

Thanks kC

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
